As of Thursday morning, the Alabama Department of Public Health has confirmed 17 people statewide have died from COVID-19.
The ADPH reports there are 1,115 cases of coronavirus in Alabama and there have been 7,774 total tests. These statistics are as of 8 a.m. on April 2.
Jefferson County has the most cases per county with 305.
Wednesday saw the announcement of the first confirmed case in Dale County. Ozark Mayor Bob Bunting says the patient is being treated at Dale Medical Center.
Also, Wednesday saw the first local death due to COVID-19. A patient being treated at Southeast Health passed away.
It is not immediately clear if the death will be reported by the Alabama Department of Public Heath. That's because Southeast Health has patients from Georgia, and perhaps other states, and those statistics are not part of Alabama's count because the patients contracted coronavirus elsewhere.
Southeast Health has tested 142 people with 19 confirmed cases of COVID-19. 38 tests are waiting to be processed. The hospital says eight patients were treated and discharged.
There are currently 32 reported deaths due to coronavirus with 17 confirmed statewide.
Reported deaths and verified deaths represent the number of individuals who have a positive lab result and are now deceased. To verify a person who died from COVID-19 disease, the medical record of the deceased person has to be reviewed by a physician and Infectious Disease and Outbreak staff. Once review is complete, if the death is attributed to COVID-19, the individual will also appear in the Verified Deaths category. Reported death totals are cumulative and will not decrease.
State officials opened a toll-free number for people who develop symptoms and need to be tested. For more on how to get tested, you can call 1-888-264-2256. This is not a medical helpline.
